The need was urgent! The Thanksgiving Community and Family Services dinner was only hours away and we had no cook! The regular chef was suddenly unavailable due to a family emergency and the concern grew over whether or not we be able to provide the Thanksgiving meal for the families we serve.
Determined not to be defeated, Major James Hagglund made a few phone calls to our other ministry units and received a message regarding a potential chef replacement. Major made the call and Willie responded. Superheroes are known for saving the day, but this hero for hope saved the Thanksgiving meal for more than 200 people!
